|Title:||Why do patients known to renal services still undergo urgent dialysis initiation? A cross-sectional survey.|
|Citation:||NEPHROL DIAL TRANSPLANT, 2007, 22 (11), pp. 3240-3245|
|Abstract:||Unplanned, urgent initiation of renal replacement therapy (RRT) is associated with poorer outcomes than planned initiation. However, in many services worldwide, substantial numbers of patients still do not begin treatment electively. The aim of this study was to identify numbers of and possible risk factors for, patients starting unplanned RRT despite being known to renal services for > or =4 months.|
